'Alice in Wonderland' Musical to Invade Broadway




Stemming from the success of Tim Burton's feature film version, the classic fairy tale will be adapted on stage and debuted next year.

"Alice in Wonderland" is set for a new adaption - on the Broadway stage. The classic Lewis Carroll story was adapted by Tim Burton earlier this year for a Disney 3D adventure, starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter.

The film took more than $1 billion at the global box office and theater bosses in New York are hoping to cash in on the tale's renewed popularity. "Wonderland: A New Alice" will see a modern-day Alice estranged from her husband and alienated from her daughter while trying to keep her job before finding herself back in Wonderland.

The show is set to open on April 17, with previews beginning on March 21, according to the Associated Press. It will be directed by Gregory Boyd with music by Wildhorn and lyrics by Jack Murphy.

    While the Burton movie certainly doesn't hurt raising money for a Broadway show, this "Wonderland" actually has been in the works for more than three years, including successful runs in Tampa and Houston in late 2009 and early this year, before the movie. -- Straz Center for the Arts, Tampa
